    I personally love Veronica, she (alongside Alexa Bliss) is the diva I am most looking forward to.

    • BorisG

      Me too, also I like Devin.

  • ????? KING ?????

    Would be perfect playing the beauty queen from hell kind of like Madison Killer Queen gimmick but i wonder in what ways can she switch it up to make it hers

    • vdcvt

      Madison’s gimmick was gold. She made it her own. I think Veronica can be sort of Eve-esque in her beauty queen. Be all sweet to get whatever you want, then be a downright bitch once you’ve got it haha

  • Half Of Me

    She has a great body i’ll have to wait & see if she can wrestle or talk though..

  • WweRules32

    cant wait for her to wrestle

    • BorisG

      She already wrestled couple of house shows. But on NXT would be good.


    She’s a beauty and I love the gimmick!

  • Fame Whore

    From the promo that leaked by her, the Gimmick seems really good & quite funny. She doesn’t even have to be amazing in the ring to pull it off as well. Differently a character driven gimmick, like Maryse’s. It would be more on point if she tried to avoid physicality because she didn’t want to in storyline ‘ruin her looks’.

  • BorisG

    This girl is gorgeous. With improvement she can be great heel and competitor.

  • xChanellex

    Can’t Wait For Her Wrestling Debut On NXT BTW She Is GAWG!

  • Angelica Marie MoNae

    She could have done better with that gown though it’s way to simple
